HomeHPRW member Eric Dousi has been in hospital after an accident in Gladstone where he works. Here's a message passed on to Sean Harrison from Eric's wife.
Saturday morning he was riding in a bunch of 10~11 riders. A motorist bore down on the last rider (a police officer of all things) being aggressive, yelling abuse, using his horn and basically menacing the riders. after a period, he accelerates to the front of the line where Eric was leading out the group and basically runs Eric off the road striking him with his car.
Eric has sustained some serious injuries including broken bones, head trauma and naturally abrasions. he is still in hospital in Gladstone, but hoping to be able to come home to Brisbane by the weekend. The driver has been arrested and the car impounded.
